New Year's Resolutions (Part 2)

Health and Fitness - A very common mistake when having New Year's goals is changing too many things at once.  Eating better, exercising more, stop smoking, ease back on drinking, lose weight...etc.  At Hollywood Soo Bahk Do Karate we focus on one thing first: movement (exercise, activity).  That's where we start.  Once movement is introduced, your body will start to make changes on its own.  It will tell you what it needs, not what it wants.  On you own, you will begin to turn down that drink, cigarette, piece of pie, or anything else that used to tempt you.  You will learn moderation and eventually, have full control of your actions.  Soo Bahk Do is the name of our style (kicks, punches, techniques).  Moo Duk Kwan is our Philosophy, the mental tools we use to inspire and motivate.  That philosophy is what separates us from being "Fighters" and becoming Martial Artists.  The respect and discipline involved in our training helps to keep you patient and focused.  Addiction becomes a thing of the past.  You will realize that the "Choice" is yours to make.  We are an "Action Philosophy" - We don't just talk about ideas/goals, we do them.
